Exceedingly cozy and well-appointed rooms in beautifully maintained guesthouse; breathtaking location of farmhouse; lovely generous breakfasts; and charming hosts. Woolen mills nearby, Killarney, and wild Atlantic Coastline. This County and its people are a gem.

Quite a lovely country B and B, I loved being greeted by the elderly lady, no conversation but I could tell she enjoyed what she was doing. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was lovely. I enjoyed a Guinness just down the road at the pub, very enjoyable.

Murphy's Farmhouse was in a great location. We were greeted by an elderly lady. Not much conversation with her she gave us our keys then told us where our room was and what time breakfast was. We enjoyed our two-night stay and breakfast both mornings. I did like the individual heaters that we controlled in our room. The two local bars Murphy's and the Anvil Bar were nice little places to have a pint & dinner in the evening.

We enjoyed our stay at Murphy's Farmhouse, although the host(s) never took the time to introduce themselves. When we checked in, we were met at the door by an elderly woman that handed us our key and told us to be at breakfast at 8:30. Not quite the greetings we received at other B&Bs. That being said, our room was comfortable and the breakfast selections were great. We visited both the Anvil & Murphy's Pub. We had a nice meal at the Anvil and a good pizza at Murphy's Pub. We were greeted warmly at the Anvil and given a rather frosty grunt at Murphy's, although he did warm up some after his family came in.

We had a lovely stay at the farmhouse, check in was easy, the room was nice and it was not too far for an evening drive to Dingle for Dinner and a walk around (about an hour). Though, we left before breakfast was served.
